Yoshitoshi's Individual Triptychs: Numbers 1-99


This set of pages attempts to show all known individual tripych prints (i.e. those triptychs which are not part of a series) produced by Yoshitoshi; this page shows individual tripyches numbered 1-99. (For others, see the table at the bottom of this page.)

We use Keyes' numbers to identify and order them. For more details on the identification system, please see the header of the complete list of triptych titles for more.

The Prints

This table is currently incomplete, as we are missing images of some triptychs.

If you have either i) images of any of the triptychs for which we are missing an image; ii) a better image of any triptcyh than one below; iii) information about any errors on the page; or iv) missing information about individual triptychs (e.g. publisher, exact date), please let us know.

To see a larger, roughly full-screen, image of any print, please click on the thumbnail; these images are sized to produce reasonable detail (if we have an original that big), and are fairly compressed.

If we have a higher-quality image, that image can be viewed by clicking on the "Large Image" link, which gives the size of the image (for the benefit of those on slow links). Sometimes there is more than one, if our best-quality image has issues (e.g. trimmed margins).

1858 It's not absolutely positive that this is Keyes #2; this image appeared on a now-offline Yoshitoshi enthusiast's site, labelled as that print, but the image is too small to confirm the title; no other image has been found, though, despite extensive searching.

1859 or 1860 The title given in Keyes (derived from other sources) is slightly different, as is the date, but the image here seems to be the print he lists
